Kristin Halbrook: NOBODY BUT US

Despite considering a run for the White House and a battle to be the first female NFL quarterback, Kristin happily decided writing was her true creative calling. She began her writing journey with editorial essays and adult upmarket fiction, but found the YA voice to be her strength and hasn't looked back since.

Kristin lives in vibrant and always delightful Seattle, where she spends non-writing time baking, goofing off, playing and watching sports, singing karaoke, exploring the city's foodie culture, spending time with family, crafting and dreaming up new travel itineraries. She prefers working in indie cafes with great espresso to working at home in her jammies.

Though she wouldn't call herself superstitious, Kristin has been known to knock on wood on occasion. Just in case.

Find Kristin at her blog, on twitter, on Facebook, on tumblr or on Goodreads. She is also a co-founder of YA Highway.

Kristin is repped by the superstartastic Suzie Townsend of Nancy Coffey Literary and Media Representation. Her debut, NOBODY BUT US (formerly WILL & ZOE), will be published by HarperTeen in Winter, 2013.

A modern day Bonnie and Clyde, NOBODY BUT US follows two teenagers - one being kicked out of the foster care system and one desperate to escape an abusive home - who run away to Vegas in search of the life of their dreams. But no matter how hard they try or how good their intentions, Will and Zoe discover they can't run fast enough when they end up wanted by the police, out of money, and out of options.
